Paul Ryan Discusses Importance of Virginia Come November
Following a rally in Richmond on Friday, Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan sat down with NBC29 during his stop in Richmond to talk about the importance of Virginia in the election.
"When I think of Charlottesville, I think of the great Virginians that came out of this wonderful place. I think of the ideas of America. I think of hope, I think of opportunity. I think of the limited government and economic freedom that gave America the greatest economic system, and the greatest country on earth," said Ryan.
He also took aim at President Obama's policies when it comes to managing the county's rising debt. "I think President Obama is taking the country in the wrong direction. We're deeper in debt, we're further in doubt, we have more in decline. We're offering a different plan, we're offering a different path forward, and that's what the Romney plan for a stronger middle class is all about," he stated.
Ryan spent Saturday campaigning with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Ohio and Florida.
